Chance The Rapper Performs ‘Coloring Book’ Cuts at Chicago Show
Chance The Rapper surprised his hometown with a pop-up show at Metro Chicago on Sunday night (July 31). Throughout the sold-out concert, the 23-year-old rapper performed several cuts from his recent mixtape, Coloring Book.
Chano ran through popular cuts including "Blessings," "All We Got," "Mixtape" and "No Problem" (twice). The South Side native brought his signature charisma and stage presence to the surprise concert, which Chance initially announced via Twitter.
Chance's Metro show came on the heels of his guest appearance at Lollapalooza for Future's set. Chano dove into his popular "No Problem" (which, by the way, is creeping up the Billboard Hot 100 as we speak) and drenched the crowd with water. The Acid Rap MC also performed a set alongside Flosstradamus and linked up with fellow Chicagoan Dwyane Wade on day one of the annual music festival.
In case you missed it, Chance is throwing the first-ever music festival at U.S. Cellular Field. The Sept. 24 concert is set to feature artists including Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Tyler, The Creator, John Legend, Young Thug, Alicia Keys, Lil Uzi Vert and Skrillex. Chano is also getting ready for his Magnificent Coloring World tour, which will span the nation throughout September and October.
